So sorry for the family's loss.
My sincere condolences and prayers sent to the family.
Mary Lou was a kind person full of personality and wisdom. She was loved by her family and I know she will be greatly missed.
My heart hurts for this entire family at this time of sorrow. Mary Lou was my sixth grade teacher and by watching her kind and caring demeanor she made a great impact on my life.A memory of her follows( we had a young boy with a learning disability, Even in sixth grade he could not read. As she gave the rest of her class an assignment to do on their own . She spent countless time helping him learn to read. So as I observed I definitely learned much more than Reading Writing and Arithmetic. God is Love. Bless all the family.
